Long Mynd & Stiperstones Shuttle Buses
Saturday 3rd July – Sunday 26th September
weekends & August Bank Holiday Monday
Explore the Shropshire Hills using our weekend Shuttle service. The buses start in Church Stretton and travel over the Long Mynd and the Stiperstones. Together these ‘hills’ make up the largest area of heathland in the AONB. The National Trust looks after much of the Long Mynd, while the most wildlife-rich and geologically dramatic area of the Stiperstones is managed as a National Nature Reserve by Natural England.
Change to the route - regular passengers please note.
The Buses start at Carding Mill Valley and call at the Beaumont Road bus stop in Church Stretton, before heading up the Burway onto the Long Mynd. From Bridges, they travel to the Stiperstones National Nature Reserve, and onto the Bog Visitor Centre and Stiperstones village. Here, the buses will turn and head back along the same route to Bridges. At Bridges, the buses head back to Church Stretton and Carding Mill Valley via Duckley Nap and Jinly, the northern end of the Long Mynd.
